We took the longer wine-tasting class on our first day in Italy because we wanted some background information on the wines we'd be seeing on the menus. This class was exactly what we were hoping for -- we learned about the different wines of the region, what sets them apart from each other, the grading system, and what pairs well... More

This was one of our favorite days/tours that we did in Europe. Everyone was very nice and the wine was exceptional; for the money it is hands down the best deal.. The lunch was great too! My husband and I brought home 6 bottles from the wineries.

My husband and I took a class with our daughter who was studying in Florence. We all had a great time. We learned a lot about the wines of the region and enjoyed tasting several of them. The lecture was lively and very entertaining, with lots of great information. We felt much more knowledgeable ordering wine in Florence after this... More

The Tuscan wine school was only the beginning of our four day wine tasting tour. The instructor was lovely and funny. In two hours time we learned so much about the region and it's wines. We love to tell our friends and family the story of the "Black Rooster", something you'll learn all about in the class. Included in class... More

The class we attended had a great selection of wines to introduce us to the wines of Tuscany. Sofia was personable and knowledgeable and engaged all the participants. It was a great way to start our tours of the region. We highly recommend this class and the tours they offer as well.

Excellent lecture. Excellent wine. The lecture was in English. No wine was offered for sale. Located in the center of old Florence.

This activity taught me how to discern a good wine. Importantly I learnt about the Italian system of classifying wines. We had a fun time.

A great way to get the lowdown on Tuscan wines! We sampled six excellent vintages and discovered some new tipples that we'll try at home.

From the minute we began our wine tour with Rebecca, it was wonderful. Besides being knowledgeable about the wines, she knows the area so well and she interacts with participants so well. Her time in Tuscany has given her contacts that allowed us to see things we might not have. Her interpersonal skills made me feel comfortable right away. I... More

Much more than a wine tasting. Background of wine classifications such as DOC and IGT, etc. thoroughly explained, as were requirements of types of grapes to be used and in what percentages. History of wine in Tuscany, growing areas, terror was explained. Finally class followed with a tasting of several Tuscan wines from modest to extra special wines, even a... More
